A rare and wonderful interview with legendary, reclusive artist Agnes Martin
Would anyone choose Alison? Really? This is a RIDICULOUSLY COOL gifset though. If you aren’t watching this…watch it…it’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime.What do you mean, “would anyone choose Alison”? Alison is fucking a+ awesome with her brittle broken awesome self and her access to weapons and her ability to use both knitting and glue gunning as an active threat. My love for Alison is intense. I also have a lot of feels about Beth. Oh Beth. Beth beth beth beth beth. Beth.
ALISON IS MY FUCKING FAVORITE AND FUCK YOU FOR INSINUATING A SOCCER MOM COULDN’T BE ANYONE’S FAVORITE
My problem isn’t that she’s a soccer mom it’s that she’s A BAD PERSON. I live deep in my shows and when someone does something unforgivable, I don’t forgive them. It actually worries me that so many people seem to sympathize with her actions (or lack thereof.)
As far as who’s the most interesting character, Alison might very well win, but she’s not awesome.
I really don’t think we can label characters as a bad person when the situation is not one that is very likely to occur um ever and it’s complicated.
Guess what if Allison was a dude it’s unlikely she would be labeled as a bad person. Because guys get to do shitty things.
Walter White had a very similar moment, and that’s the moment I stopped watching Breaking Bad.
Our culture has been obsessed with anti-heroes since The Soprano’s and I guess I’m just a little sick of it. I’m tired of glamorizing murderers and manipulators.
Murder isn’t a character flaw.
Portland administrators will flush 38 million gallons of water from Mt. Tabor Reservoir 5 after a 19-year-old man urinated in the city’s drinking supply.
“Even though there is very minimal public health risk, the bottom line is that our commitment is to serve water that’s clean, cold and constant,” said Water Bureau administrator David Shaff. “That doesn’t include pee. Not from people, at least.”
Raise your hand if you want to watch a Portlandia episode featuring this incident.
The end of the Cold War resulted in a temporary slackening of military spending for NATO nations and Russia. Since the turn of the 21st century, the United States has begun to pump more money into defense — driven in part by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — dwarfing Russia’s steady buildup.
Can you control your metabolism with your mind?
Turns out … yes.
Food as placebo! Does labeling something “low fat” or “healthy” trick our brains in the wrong direction? Feed your mind with this great vid from NPR Science.
